Great Everyday Car
Radiator developed a leak around 60,000 miles. I had it replaced and haven't had any more problems.
Driver's side automatic seatbelt broke in the forward position. My dad and I got one from a junkyard stuck in the back position so I at least have a seatbelt even if I have to pull it over my head.
Clip for the lap belt on the driver's side broke.
I got the timing belt and water pump replaced at 90,000 just as a precaution.
I love this car. I've taken it on long trips with no problems. I do have to make sure I watch my speed on long trips or I easily go 20 to 30 miles over the speed limit.
It has great city gas mileage.
It does lose a lot of power when I use the air conditioning.
I love how much space the hatchback gives me. It's amazing what you can pack into this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
